Goldman Sachs dials back GDP forecast for Q3

Via Calculated Risk, Goldman Sachs forecast for GDP: 
We have lowered our Q3 GDP forecast to +5.5%, reflecting hits to both consumer spending and production. Spending on dining, travel, and some other services is likely to decline in August, though we expect the drop to be modest and brief. Production is still suffering from supply chain disruptions, especially in the auto industry, and this is likely to mean less inventory rebuild in Q3.

Don't know how this will affect the job market, but we shall see.
